PL 4340 - The Philosophy of Marcel

This course involves a systematic, detailed examination of the major themes in several of Marcel’s main works. Themes covered include: Marcel’s Christian existentialist account of the human person; the distinctions between being and having, problem and mystery, primary and secondary reflection; the “concrete approaches” to human existence; and the philosophical critique of modern culture. Some consideration is also given to Marcel’s place in contemporary thought.

Prerequisite: PL 1100  or PL 1150 .
